    Titans players/staff test positive for COVID-19

    Glad I’m not the only one that sees this. There have been more fudged tests than you can shake a stick at. The fear mongering is in full press mode. Hysterical headlines, body parts falling off, heads exploding, skin melting, etc. Uh huh,sure. Yep, no reason to click on any articles that show how the vast majority end up fine. Better to cherry pick the extreme, edge cases. He’s just stating the obvious. This has been oversold and watching football games(or any other sport) without fans is stupid. Keep the old and sick home. Isolate who you have to. The rest of us should be able to meander about.

    ***Official Chiefs @ Ravens MNF Thread***

    It’s hard not to. In order for the guy to shine he has to have a big lead, needs to be playing against a crappy opponent and needs every other variable to be in his favor. The exact opposite of an MVP caliber QB. Like I said, he’ll beat up on Cincinnati and a few other easy Pickens' teams. He’ll probably even have a good game here and there against strong teams but overall there is a huge list of QBs I’d much rather have than him on my NFL team. He’s like low tier 2 at best, IMO. Guys like him just don’t cut it long term. The gimmicks only last so long. Look how Josh Allen of Buffalo is starring to "get it" and even he still looks to run too much. Great QBs must be able to make throws and lead their team back from deficits. Lamar ain’t that guy. Not at all.

    ***Official Chiefs @ Ravens MNF Thread***

    Couldnt agree more. The "facade" that was his BS MVP season was clearly a joke. Dude isnt an NFL quarterback. Reminds of Kordell Stewart, if that. The Ravens can be added to large pile of "pretenders" in the AFC.

    Deshaun Watson

    He’s severely over rated, especially as NFL quarterback. Maybe tier 3. The Texans are so screwed with his huge salary and extremely mediocre performance. Tough schedule? Too damned bad, great QBs can play against the top teams. It’s clear that Watson is lame. Just like Lamar Jackson....(he’s my other overrated QB) Watson will have some big games against garbage teams but overall he’s a $160 million dollar farce.

    ***Official Chiefs @ Ravens MNF Thread***

    Say it with me now: Lamar Jackson is a gimmicky, run only QB for the most part. Yeah, he’ll rack up some stats against the Browns, Jaguars and a few other Bush league teams but he’s one of the last guys you’d want during a two minute drill with the game on the line when THROWS are needed to be made. He has little to no touch on is deep ball and doesn’t really see the field like a professional QB should. He’ll be occasionally fun to watch and will have some runs that make the highlight reel but he’s not an elite quarterback. Not at all. Although the NFL will certainly pimp him as such. I’m not falling for it.

    Stupid Covid. Might not be a shootout. No question its the best MNF game in what seems like years. Now if they can just do something about the unwwatchbale garbage that theyre putting on Thursday night, lol.

    The Official Week 3 FU Thread

    I dont have a horse in the race per se but the number of stupid pass interefence calls that plagued the games is just awful. The Bills got a freebie win handed to them due to it. New Orleans got called for it like dozens of times, etc. So tired of that damn call. If a pass is under-thrown then the rule should be changed so that PI does not apply anymore. Something has to be done here. Let them fight for the ball & make the QBs throw proper passes. Its to the point where they can purposely keep under-throwing routes and have like a 50% or greater chance of getting a call. Its dumb.

    No Preseason = More Injuries

    Means nothing. It was just an unlucky week for certain teams/players. It happens. Pre-season is the stupidest thing ever and should be shelved indefinitely. Just do 2-hand touch scrimmages to get in shape & get your timing down. Thats good enough.
  9. It was a "Stand around like morons and let the other team recover." The falcons still haven’t recovered from their epic meltdown in the SB. Wow. What a horrible way to lose a game. They outplayed Dallas for like 59:15 seconds.

    Cowboys at Rams: SNF Discussion

    True - but the NFL isnt worried about bearitng up your wife or girlfriend. Thats fine. What isnt fine is respecting your country.

    Cowboys at Rams: SNF Discussion

    Sounds good to me. Great group of guys are quite likeable too. I mean, Mahomes is such a solid kid. Reid is an easy to like coach. The Hunt family are long time NFL owners. Whats not to like here? Im not a Chiefs fan at all but if they go on some long streak of winning it wont be nearly as annoying or "suspect" as another franchise that recently has done such a thing.

    Cowboys at Rams: SNF Discussion

    My goodness. Is anyone still buying what the Cowboys are selling? They have been pimped up to be the "team" year after year after year. Results? Fails. Year after year after year. Dont care if its one game. We know how this is going to go. They'll underachieve and fizzle out. Always. Im tired of them being on national TV like 48 times a year too. Big draw my ass. Who cares? Lets change that up and get somenew teams/games on the national stage. Sick of it, quite frankly.

    What have we learned from week 1?

    Kind of, yeah. The lack of fans was brutal. Felt like a scrimmage at times. I dunno. Sumtin' aint right. And yes - get ready for political speech after speech after speech. Then, more diatribe. The commercial frequency is high too. Meh. Football is almost becoming a sport that you can "watch" whilst doing other things which didnt used to be the case. Two worthless games tonight too. Bad teams with boring players. Not even bothering.

    Tampa Tom

    Uh oh - Pick 6. Its only one game but he wasnt exactly lighting it up last season either. Ill save judgement until like week 7-8 before I go overboard here. Hes earned that.
  15. Stupid. We have to stop treating this virus like its Ebola 2.0 or whatever. Huge majority recover just fine. Lets calm down the hysterics a bit, shall we? Just let them play and get some fans in there too. This is getting dumber and dumber with the restrictions. Are they really dong anything?

    well that was fun

    Huh? Whos running away? Alls people are saying is that its nice once in a while to get away from politics and propaganda. Isnt it? Everywhere you turn now there is some "virtue signaling" going on. Its unrelenting and the big question that has to be asked is which of these people are actually DOING something about it? When is the last time Collinsworth served at a soup kitchen or devoted time to help the "disadvantaged and downtrodden"? Has he attempted to work with police to help this situation? I suspect not. Nope, right after the game he probably drove his fancy car right back to his gated mansion community. Its so fake and stupid. And it is not the right platform. The public streets or local Govt are the right platform. People amazingly tune into football games to watch football and thats it. Shocking. Oh and the players too - stop the grand standing and go make an actual difference. Kneeling during anthems and locking arms is touching and all but again: What have they actually done to help? Im sure a few of them are trying but most will just drive home in their Lambo after the game to their MTV crib and pile of rented bitches. Like they give a crap? C'mon.
  17. Wow - DeShaun Watson sucks. Guy is living large now and apparently doesnt care. He'll rack up stats against junk teams but Houston is in trouble, IMO.
  18. RoadLizard

    well that was fun

    I understand. I think most people are. And face it - Collnsworth and most people putting on the bleeding heart show are totally removed from it. They'll never experience anything like police issues or whatever. Its pure virtue signaling as in "Hey, look at me, I give a damn". Then they return to their gated mansion comminuties. This includes many of the players too. Its lame.
  19. RoadLizard

    well that was fun

    The message itself isn’t so bad and people are free to protest and do what they need to. But, not during a football game. I realize it was week one and this will calm down but between Collinsworth endless diatribe and whatever else.....ugh....just play the dammed game. Sorry but politics and propaganda don’t belong in any sport. Period.
  20. Excellent! Glad you are going. ENJOY!!!!
  21. Im scared.....that this game will be lame due to no fans and whatever other "things" are going to go on. Ugh. I hope they havent ruined footbal forever. Just when you thought sports was your escape from the day to day BS, BAM! They drop it on you anyways. Please be a good game and keep the *crap* out of it. Lets get fans back too. Cant keep this lockdown thing going on forever. Healthy people have no reason to be kept out of stadiums.
  22. Brees has a right to say what he wants to ay just like Kaperclink does. Oh and since when has sports been a venue for political propoganda and preaching? People attend and watch sports to escape from the day to bay BS. They dont want to watch some sideshow, hear some stupid rant or anything else. Just play the damned game. Thats all. Thats what the ticket price includes. Nothing else. This trend towards sports becoming a political-propoganda machine is dangerous territory. Now we are changing team names, cranking up the wokeness, banning this, plastering jerseys with political messages, etc. Huh? What? I dont care what side its for or against either. None of it has anything to do with sports whatsoever. Leave it out. Go join a protest or light some stuff on fire on your own time. Keep it out of the games and broadcasts. MM kay? Cool.. Thanks.
  23. I sure would and I suspect most non-New Englanders would too. I think in the right scenario with a solid team around him he could be effective even as the pocket passer systems seem to be dwindling these days in the NFL. I would love it. There are some teams that might be a QB away from making some noise. And it also lets us see Hoodie have to make due with a new QB himself. Very interesting stuff, IMO. Thoughts?

    Super Bowl 54: Chiefs vs. 49ers

    This game is over. Its also sort of boring. Whatever.

    Eli Manning to announce retirement on Friday

    So, TWO miraculous throws is all it takes? I disgaree completely. Eli was good and thats it. Dude had a great playoff run a few times and did win 2 Super Bowls but that aint enough. Not at all. Again though, its become a popularity contest. What does Eli Manning have to do with the "story" of the NFL? To me thats a generic story about the game itself and how its evolved, become so popular, its roots, etc. Not specific plays from specific games. Thats BS. Whatever. Lets just put Trent Dilfer in there too. He won a Super Bowl.
